Thia was written during the Vietnam Comflict. Guys running from America to Canada, wanting no part of war thus Im gonna leave you I don't need your war machines, I don't need your Ghetto sceens this was America. Canada was their safe haven, not beeing in love with another Woman !!!!!!!
song is not about a woman. its about america.
I think this song is so funny to use for a garter toss... How many weddings have you been to when all the single men step aside so they don't catch it?
I actually think i'll use this song! I think it's funny and ironic in my case. It also fits perfectly, My fiance is German and because I have the smaller family we're going to go to Magdeburg or Berlin to get married, and i'm obviously an American Woman.
okay this is so not a wedding song. for one he is singing about how he is telling her to go away at all costs! and then at the end how he's leaving? how is that supost to be fitting for a new husband and wife?....
i fucked a american woman
it was good...then i killed her..I slept with a russian woman...it was good..then i killed her long story short be like me and have sex then kill them and take your money back
this is not the right song for anything
This song is filled with fate....One time when I was patrolling an oil rig in Bagdad, and I was talking to my bestfriend while listening to this song and he put his gun down only to mis-fire and shot him directly in the head.....Then 3 insergents came to check the noise and threw a grenade killing my buddy I joined with who protected me from the bigger guys. He saved my life and I could never return the favor, all while this song was playing......I was alone and with no more friends in the world.......They dyed for all of us!!!!!

good song.. not wedding music
this song is defanetly not wedding music.... but its a really good song =] =] =]
not wedding music
This is NOT wedding music. Who put this on here?!
An American Woman
The original artist was the Guess Who, a Canadian band, and it's a statement about the difference between Americans and Canadians.. "i don't need your war machines, i don't need your ghetto scenes".
NO WAY THAT SONG SUCKS
I agree with Bethany that song is not a wedding song cause he don't want to be COMMITTED and he wants to be with her but he wants it on his terms
UMMMM AS THE WOMAN I REALIZE HE HE WANTS HER BUT IT ALSO IMPLYS HE DOESNT WANT TO DEAL WITH COMMITTMENT NOT SO GREAT FOR A WEDDING
Who was the artist of the original version of this song?!
